This a really useful and informative podcast which is well researched, full of great guests and there is always some new information to digest.
Appreciate this podcast a LOT!
It’s very enjoyable to listen to as well as being delivered in a way that sparks curiosity, provides lots of insight and covers an array of topics in a most respectful and thoughtful way. It always astounds me that the host gives so much of his time and effort to this in such a selfless way (though we can hear his passion and interest so hope he’s at least feeling the joy!) If I was rich, I’d like to give this program all the resources needed as it’s just consistently excellent and has important content that we need to hear more of. Truly appreciate this podcast.
I spend 4-6 hrs each week driving in very remote regions of NT to deliver diabetes support to remote indigenous communities. The highlight of the journey is listening to your podcasts. I love that you acknowledge not just GPS but also nurses and Allied health.
Such a diverse range of topics!
I have recommended this to many of my colleagues who also enjoy listening to these.
Keep it up . We are big fans.
